Is there a hidden meaning behind “On My I G”?
I wouldn't say there was a hidden meaning. Consistently when I would go to my IG app, I would see these beautiful amazing women everyday. I simply made a song reflecting the emotions and thoughts I felt and had.
What makes “On My I G” different from your other releases?
Well first, it's my first official single that I have released on all platforms. It was my first time using auto tune. It was also the very first positive feel good song that I had done for a long time. The first song I had done when I had completely climbed out of a dark place.
What inspired you to start writing music?
My friend who was more like a brother to me, José. I made a promise to him when he died that I would at least try to become a rapper because that's what he wanted for me. I started out as a poet and he used to read all of my poetry. He kept pushing me to rap as I deflected the idea. Now here I am. He never even got to hear my first song but I hope I'm making him proud now. My best friend Maus too. She's the reason I started writing poetry again to begin with. She continues to be a muse for me even today.
Do you have any musical influences who have helped shape your career in music? If so, who and why?
Most definitely J. Cole and Kendrick Lamar. To me they both embody everything rap/hip hop was, is, and will be. I feel like they've kept it the realest in the industry. They actually care about the content in which they give to the world. They are two of the best talents I've ever had the privilege to witness.
What's next for you through 2019?
I'm currently working on piecing together an album. I'm not promising that it will be out this year though. I do have more singles to drop. Growth is my main focus this year. I'm currently exploring ways to achieve the growth I'm searching for, which lead me to this opportunity.
